Fondazione Torino Musei Friends
Become a Fondazione Torino Musei Friend
The "AMICI DELLA FONDAZIONE TORINO MUSEI” (FRIENDS OF THE FOUNDATION MUSEUMS TORINO) association was established in March 2007 with the aim of extending the activities of the former "Amici della Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Torino" (Friends of the Modern Art Gallery of Torino), which had been established in 1999, to all the museums of the City of Torino.
The Association is a voluntary, non-profit organisation. It pursues cultural and social activities with the objective of contributing to a better understanding and appreciation of the historical and artistic heritage held by its civic museums: the Galleria d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Palazzo Madama, the Borgo Medievale and the Museo d’Arte Orientale.
To achieve the above objectives, the Association organises guided tour previews of its museums’ collections and temporary exhibitions; it also promotes events focused on topics relating to art and to the preservation of cultural heritage. Moreover, it organises regular study trips designed to gain in-depth knowledge of major Italian and international museums.
The Association also engages in fundraising to support Foundation activities. The enclosed leaflet presents a selection of restoration projects carried out on works from the Civic Museums: this restoration activity is included in programmes intended to preserve and raise awareness about the city’s collections.
The Association invites anyone who considers art to be an invaluable asset to join the Friends and ensure the continuity and further advancement of its goals and its support to city museums.
